Flying Eagles Coach Paul Aigbogun has denied he has released a final squad list for the forthcoming All Africa Games in Morocco.This denial came on the heels of an announcement by the team’s spokesman, Andrew Randa, of a final squad for the continental games.“That is not our list. I did not release any list,” dismissed Aigbogun. Paul Aigbogun The perplexed coach added, “How can I release any list when we just assembled in camp?“For instance, there’s a player there by name Solomon (Ogberahwe). He is not in camp, the last I heard, he had traveled to Sweden. How can I include such a player on the list?“I don’t know who is responsible for that falsehood or what they stand to gain.“Fine, the bulk of players on the list might make the list as they are in camp, but to be candid, that is not the original list.“With time Nigerians will get to see the final and authentic list after we have had days of active preparation.”The coach informed SCORENigeria the Flying Eagles will play test matches in the new week in Abuja. In the list in circulation now refuted by Aigbogun were the quartet of Success Makanjuola, Chinonso Emeka, Peter Eletu and Detan Ogundare who are regulars in the Flying Eagles.Makanjuola, Chinonso and Ogundare were part of the world squad in Poland while Zaruma was part of the team that finished fourth in the U-20 AFCON in Niger Republic earlier this year.Nigeria will face hosts Morocco, South Africa and Burkina Faso in Group A of the male event of the All Africa Games which the U-20 grade level will participate in for the first time.The Confederation of African Football (CAF) took the decision to allow the seven teams that participated in the U-20 AFCON together with host Morocco to make up the eight teams for the tournament.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

The Lakers were waiting on the results Wednesday morning.Mozgov suffered a laceration in his mouth with 9:44 left in the third quarter from an inadvertent elbow from Pacers guard Jeff Teague. After receiving four stitches to close a gap on his lip, Mozgov returned with 3:59 left in the quarter. Mozgov then got poked in his left eye after Indiana forward Lavoy Allen fouled him. Mozgovleft the game for good with 2:36 left in the third period.Mozgov’s left eye appeared swollen as he spoke to reporters after the game. “I can see,” Mozgov said. “But it’s not regular.”It’s not clear who will start in Mozgov’s place. Candidates could include Tarik Black or Ivica Zubac. Walton could also revert to a small lineup by featuring Julius Randle or Larry Nance Jr. at the center position.

As the inventor of folha-seca “He has a hit suigéneris. It is a ball that moves little. Up and down. I would lie if I told you that the paste like Didí … investigates the folha-seca … “, Aguirre replied to questions from journalists about what he thinks of his player’s punch. The reference to Didí are major words. The Brazilian, who died in 2001, was world champion in 58 and 62 and was, at the time, one of the best rights on the planet. He went through Real Madrid and is part of the International Football Hall of Champions, FIFA’s hall of fame. He is also considered the inventor of the beating that Oscar executed, the folha-seca. “It has entered perfect. I can not complain. I was convinced”, toned in mixed zone yesterday Oscar himself, who, rogue, revealed that his hit had a slight trick. Before throwing, he moved the ball back a little so that the ball could catch more travel in the fall. “I have seen that the barrier was a little close and I threw it back. And the ball has entered well ”he confessed. Real’s goal was the fifth that marks this season (whenever he scores, the Lega scores) and the ninth since he is a Leganés player. Coincidentally, none of those who won last season were a direct foul, one of the luck he was already driving in his time at Real Madrid and which has taken a long time to look for Butarque, although, now that he has done so, he shows it easily. So much that he even dares to challenge Leo Messi. Because with the goal (goal) he made to Real Sociedad this Sunday, The midfielder Pepinero already has three goals of direct foul, only one less than Messi, the current leader of this classification in the overall championship. He struggles in terms of figures that could well be also in terms of the beauty of the many. Oscar dominates the art of folha-seca, that dry beat that takes height to, seconds later, descend violently as if it were magnetized by Mother Earth. That has been the formula with which this ex of Real Madrid has marked those three goals of failure that already adds this season. Goals are, in Leganés, a matter of drought. It is not that pickles have distinguished themselves since they were First for crushing rival goals. And to do it already for lack seemed almost impossible affair. The statistics supported the chimera. Until September 25, 2019, in the current season, he had only scored a bit of direct pitching. It was achieved by Gabriel Pires on September 17, 2016 against Barça (1-5). More than three years of drought that Óscar Rodríguez broke in front of Athletic. That goal at the dawn of autumn has uncovered the talent of Los Navalmorales, now launched in this fate to be able to challenge Leo Messi himself.

– as residents decry sugar workers’ joblessnessFollowing the revelation that multiple workers attached to the Rose Hall Estate are being laid off, members of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) on Thursday protested Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo as he visited the Auchlyne Primary School on the Corentyne (Region Six) in East Berbice, he having travelled to the ancient county to celebrate his 70th birthday.The Prime Minister was visiting the school he had attended as a child, and what was meant to be a warm occasion was soon turned into bedlam as he was greeted by the chants from Opposition protestors decrying the closure of the sugar estates.Their protest action comes on the heels of information disclosed to Guyana Times late on Thursday — that some 500 more workers could face the breadline in addition to the 400 which were already reported to have been laid off. The protesters have claimed that the Prime Minister had deceived his fellow Berbicians.“We are here to remind the Prime Minister that 400 sugar workers would be on the breadline…and we are here to remind him about his campaign promise he made over 2 years ago – that sugar is too big to fail, and that they have the solution for sugar and he would ensure that sugar workers are not on the breadline,” protestor Zamal Hussain told Guyana Times.Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, had announced that the Special Purpose Unit (SPU) established under the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL) would manage the privatisation/divestment process of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) and determine the way forward for Rose Hall Estate.He had also claimed that closure of the estate was pushed back to sometime in 2018. Guyana Times, however, understands that the Special Purpose Unit, under the Ministry of Finance, may have brought forward the plans to discontinue the services of Rose Hall employees, which an insider pegged at 961 total workers before initial redundancy.Contacted for comment on Thursday, Agriculture Minister Noel Holder refrained from committing to a specific timeframe for the closure of Rose Hall Estate, but confirmed that the SPU is assuming responsibility for the divested estate, rather than GuySuCo.“The Special Purpose Unit falls under the Ministry of Finance and NICIL, not under Agriculture. I am not the subject minister for the Special Purpose Unit,” he clarified.“The State Paper says that GuySuCo will not be involved in [the divestment of] East Demerara and Rose Hall,” the minister added.When later asked directly about when the Rose Hall Estate would be closed, this minister directed this publication to speak with the Minister of State, as he was the one who would have made the disclosure of a deferred date. However, earlier in the afternoon, Minister Harmon did not allow the full complement of questions that he would normally take at his post-cabinet press briefings.Guyana Times recently saw a letter concerning a Junior Staff Redundancy Notification directed to Rose Hall Estate Field Supervisor Ramnarine Subramanian. Dated November 26, 2017, the letter stated that a meeting had been held at the Rose Hall Estate Community Centre on November 22 in the presence of this category of workers’ union, the NAACIE (National Association of Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Employees (NAACIE). The document stated that GuySuCo no longer had job vacancies to retain Subramanian’s services, and thatDecember 29, 2017 would be his last day with the Rose Hall Estate and GuySuCo, and that termination of his services was in keeping with the Termination of Employment and Severance Pay Act 1997 (TESPA).Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) President, Komal Chand, related on Wednesday that most of the 400 terminated workers had payments to them outstanding, and he expressed hope that the situation would not end up similar to what had obtained at Wales Estate, where, after almost one year, workers are still to be paid termination benefits.In May 2017, Government announced plans to close the Enmore and Rose Hall Sugar Estates, sell the Skeldon Sugar Factory, reduce the annual production of sugar, and take on the responsibility of managing the drainage and irrigation services offered by GuySuCo.The decisions announced by Government have been met with repeated protest actions, especially in sugar belt areas. Those protesting the presence of Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo on Thursday have also called on Government to rescind the appointment of GECOM Chairman Justice James Patterson.When the Prime Minister visited Region Six earlier this month to attend two graduation ceremonies, the opposition political party had picketed him, and had vowed to so do whenever he or President David Granger visits the region.
Roberto Firmino 3 3 3 Milner’s reputation as a reliable utility man at Manchester City has been the hallmark of his domestic and international career, and Klopp may wish to utilise him in a similar manner once he gets a full look at his squad after the international break.At Dortmund, Klopp had a very Milner-esque player in Kevin Grosskreutz who was a typical 7/10 performer every week, and there is a feeling Milner’s versatility could see him mimic that role as a workhorse on the right side of midfield.Time will tell how Klopp plans to amalgamate his array of attacking talent, particularly with Daniel Sturridge, Christian Benteke and Danny Ings all vying for what is likely to be one forward’s position, but his appreciation for youth may also see the introduction of a few new faces.One thing is for sure – no one is safe. Every Liverpool player now has a mercurial and ruthless new manager to impress. Klopp will not be reticent to cast established first-team players into the wilderness, and that may just be what the Reds need to inspire an upturn in fortunes.Is this how Klopp’s Liverpool could line up once his squad is back to full strength? Comment below if you think it may differ… Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Liverpool has installed levels of hysteria on Merseyside perhaps only rivalled in recent times by the final six months of the 2013/2014 season in which they came agonisingly close to a first Premier League title.The general consensus is this could be a fresh start. A blank slate. Brendan Rodgers, who was dismissed last week, was undermined by his tendency for hyperbole which ultimately created disillusionment amongst the Anfield faithful who lost patience with the Northern Irishman’s digressions.Klopp’s appointment has understandably manifested tenuous reports linking players from his Borussia Dortmund days with moves to Merseyside, with the German viewed as an enticing pull factor by the club’s owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG).But it is a player already amongst the Reds’ squad who may benefit the most from Klopp’s arrival.The £29m capture of Roberto Firmino in the summer epitomised the dysfunctional relationship between Rodgers and the club’s infamous transfer committee. The Brazilian was a committee signing rather than a player, like Christian Benteke and Nathaniel Clyne, actively pursued by Klopp’s predecessor.Rodgers’ reluctance to promote and entrust Firmino, who is currently sidelined with a back injury, with greater responsibility became candidly apparent almost instantly, casting the former Hoffenheim star into wide positions rather than his more established central role.In the aftermath of the disappointing 3-1 defeat to their great rivals Manchester United last month, Rodgers launched a thinly-veiled jibe at Firmino for his side’s ‘lack of creativity’ after he deployed the Brazilian on the right wing.For a player who amassed the most assists in the last two Bundesliga seasons and was statistically ranked the German top flight’s third best player last term, behind Arjen Robben and Kevin De Bruyne, it made little sense and was inhibiting his unique talents to float deceptively in between the lines.Klopp is already a well-known admirer of Firmino from his Bundesliga days and may look to restore the 24-year-old to his preferred number ten role where he previously flourished in Germany.The 48-year-old’s high intensity, dynamic 4-2-3-1 formation at Dortmund saw Marco Reus, his most prized asset, fielded on the left of the three behind a lone striker. Liverpool’s most potent attacking force is Philippe Coutinho, and Klopp may look to emulate his success with Reus by shifting Coutinho to the left to incorporate Firmino in a more natural role.Reus isn’t a winger but excelled in that role when allowed to cut in on his right foot – something Coutinho has made his signature move in 2015. The Brazilian wouldn’t be expected to hug the touchline either with left-back Alberto Moreno’s tendency to bomb forward providing the natural width.James Milner is another summer signing whose Liverpool career could take an interesting turn under Klopp. The England international cited Rodgers’ promise to deploy him in his favoured central midfield position as the main factor in his decision to move up the East Lancs Road, but he has so far struggled with the added responsibility.
